of the fact he's more willing to go over the fiscal cliff than the republicans are. why should he? because then taxes would go up on everybody in the country. they would go up on the rich and barack obama steps in and says i'm going to rescue the country from what the republicans did to save their rich folks from a haircut. i'm proposing tax cuts for 98% of the american people who deserve that. >> there's a way to head that off. isn't it the republicans should pass a bill that extends the bush tax cuts for everybody? >> they should pass two bills. first, they should pass a bill extending the payroll taxes which are going to take $2000 off the top of a family that makes $100,000 a year. the cut. that's going to go back into effect. the second thing is they should -- hold it. they should pass the -- they should reenact the bush tax cuts. send it over to the senate and say listen, harry reid, you can do what you want. you can accept these and send them to the president or you can offer to negotiate or you can reject them and we can go over the clinch but that's your call now. we don't want to

, the republicans are trying to criticize the obama proposals by saying you're not cutting spending, you're not coming to us on entitlements, but it's falling flat. no one's really listening and the white house has controlled the debate that it's all about the upper 2%. the first thing in texas you do is shrink the size of government, wouldn't you? >> well, we did that. we faced a substantial budget shortfall. we have a constitutional amendment that requires us to have a balanced budget, which frankly america needs that. >> i don't know what would happen. >> most states have that. >> the states that are -- i would suggest to you the states that are doing better economically have a constitutional amendment that requires them to balance their budget. so, we had to deal with that in the early 2000s. and interestingly, it was the first time since the 19th century, since back about 1870, that there were all republicans, republican speaker, republican house, republican lieutenant governor, republican senate and myself, and we had run on the premise that we were going to treat government differ

to muddle through this. the democrats have a proposal on the table. the republicans say it is not serious. republicans have a proposal on the table. democrats say it is not serious. now a new line in the sand from president obama, this from an interview with bloomberg tv a short while ago saying we're going to have to see the rates on the top 2% go up and we're not going to be able to get a deal without it. the president hadn't gone there before. perhaps there was perhaps a wiggle room following thought. still there is no line in the sand how much rates have to go up. the white house position is that they must go back to clinton rates for top earners. that is nearly 40% on amounts of more than $250,000 a year. republicans have put $800 billion of unspecified tax revenue on the table but they're saying no to a tax rate increase. democrats have said no to that proposal.% in response to that a spokesman for house speaker john boehner saying despite republicans offer to put real revenue on the table the president has offered no concessions whatsoever. when will this willingness to compromise
